The Importance Of Communication


As we travel through life, my wife and I are realizing the importance of communication in our relationship.

We always ask how the other is feeling, and ask if there is anything we can do. In the beginning, Suzie would give me the typical, “I’m fine” response.

She’s learning to trust me as she opens up to share her feelings. Feelings that she used to keep to herself, all bottled up inside.

Through communication, I’ve learned the reasons why she used to keep things to herself. She feared ridicule, mocking, and judgment.

I had no idea. Until we started to truly communicate and talk about this.

My wife can tell me anything because she knows my mind is continually impressed with images of right action. Everything in my life revolves around peace, love and understanding.

It wasn’t always like this for me. I used to be “that guy” who ridiculed, mocked, and judged others. And still, the road isn’t always smooth. But the recognition of a powerful, creative Mind…and the constant presence of Good…makes for a beautiful harmonious marriage.

We are constantly becoming closer, and discovering more about ourselves on this wonderful journey of love together.

And it all starts with open, honest, communication.

(For my wife’s perspective, please read her blog called, The Power Of Communication.)

  1. Couldn’t agree more. Don and I committed right from the beginning to keep nothing hidden, to be always self-revealing. As you obviously know, it’s the only way to be close. Otherwise it’s all walking on eggshells and trying to be what you think the other person wants you to be. Painful. And in the end it’s these walls that cause the end of relationships, and the tearing down of the walls that makes them stronger.

  2. Hello dude, nice article btw, Yeah like you said. Communication is an important one. My 4 years relationship is broken 2 months ago. It caused by our bad communication. She don’t like to open his mind to me. So i don’t know what she wants. As a result i did the wrong act. And she becomes angry with me, our relationship broken. Keep posting dude. I will wait for it.
